A female audiologist explains hearing loss to a patient

If you’ve been in to see an Audiologist, congratulations on taking the first step. An Audiologist can address concerns with balance, tinnitus, and hearing. But what happens next?

If there were no issues detected, lucky you. We’ve sent you home and showed you how to protect your ears from preventable damage due to loud sounds. When there are concerns that need to be addressed, we will take the time to learn about you and make a plan for treatment.

If balance or dizziness is an issue, this should always be shared with your physician and other health care professionals that take part in your well being. A visit or two with an Audiologist who is qualified to evaluate and treat balance can in most cases, have you walking out the door feeling better. Your wellness is our priority, and we want to help you safely navigate your environment.

When tinnitus is bothersome, we can help reduce the angst and stress associated with those unwanted ear noises. While living with tinnitus is a struggle, an Audiologist will work to find strategies and customize a plan to give you relief. A variety of solutions to ease the tinnitus and lifestyle changes can help to make the days easier. Avoiding negativity and taking care of yourself helps. Relaxation can be an integral part of successful treatment.

Improving and protecting hearing is the most common reason to see an Audiologist. Understanding where struggles lie and learning what is important to improve communication is where we start. After all, life expectancy and the quality of life is improved with social interaction. Choosing solutions to improve hearing and associated follow-up should be uniquely designed. Providing ear protection and understanding how to properly use it is critical to maintain the one set of ears you already have.

Audiologists improve the quality of life. Reach out and let us help. We’re waiting for you.
